RockyHeavyweight

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe this is the third time Fox has released the complete Rocky Set. I have the feeling this is timed to coincide with the brand new Broadway show that also launched in the last few weeks. Whatever the case, I’m always down for a solid Rocky marathon. This awesome new Rocky Heavyweight Collector’s set includes all six Rocky films in a beautiful slimmed down case and grittier box art. I’m not going to review all six films here because, let’s face it, if you don’t know what Rocky is by now, then you don’t care or have any taste in films and most likely you wouldn’t buy this set anyway.

Iron-Man3

While I’ve always been a fan of the Iron Man comic books, the movies have always left me a bit cold – even the first one, that everyone seems to love. So I can’t say that I was eagerly anticipating Iron Man 3, nor can I say I was really disappointed with it.

once-upon-a-time-season-two-blu-ray

Season Two of Once Upon A Time, ABC’s drama about classic fairy tale characters living in modern times is now available on Blu-ray. This 5 disc set includes all 22 episodes in glorious hi-definition. This is why TV on DVD/Blu-ray has been invented. I’m the first to rail against ABC Tv’s flakey scheduling for breaking a lot of shows. Serialized TV programs like Once Upon A Time, Revenge, Scandal are meant for binge watching. I admittedly have a very short attention span and I lose interest when I only get 1 or 2 episodes every one or two months.  So with Once Upon a Time I bailed on Season Two after Episode 7 last year.
